During “Hallu-Si-Nations” of “Duck Dynasty”, which aired on 03/13/13 on A&E, Jase was in charge of the Pack, while Willie was out of town on a business trip. A sure recipe for disaster. But Willie thought he outsmarted his employees by making Jase sign for a package, that would arrive at 4 p.m. at the warehouse.
With Willie gone, the guys quickly get to talking about hunting, and with a little persuasion from Si, they decide that it was a good day to go and put some brush on their blinds. So they leave work and head out to the Robertson land to get busy cutting brush.
Meanwhile Reed, Jase’s son, shows up and Phil’s and Miss Kay’s house, with a friend, to pick up a football jersey. A perfect opportunity to get some free labor out of his grandson, since according to Phil, these kids were taught to respect their elders.
“This will teach you about hand-eye-coordination,” Phil explains, as he makes the boys fix hoop nets for him, while they keep on complaining that they really wanted to go watch a football game. But Phil is not done yet. He tries to think of other ways that he can incorporate football into the chores he needs done and quickly decides that the boys need to toughen up their feet for the games.
He makes them take of their shoes and carry a boat for him through the yard – barefooted. The boys are not happy, but Phil just keeps walking off, leaving the boys to do the chores for him.
Back out on the Robertson land, the gang is finally done cutting their brush for their blinds and is heading back to the truck, when Si insists that he spotted a black panther. No amount of reasoning seems to make him change his mind about what he saw.
“Most people, when they see a black cat cross the street, they think it’s bad luck. When Si sees a black cat, he thinks it’s a black panther,” Jase mocks.
Upon arrival at the truck, they run into a problem. The keys are locked inside the truck and the only person on the defense is, who else could it be, Si: “Jase’s truck locked itself. It’s just like in Terminator 2.” He smacks the truck a few times and ends up setting off the alarm.
Jase realizes that the chances of him making it back to the office in time to sign for the package are getting worse by the minute: “And nobody is going to care about my excuses, and they are really good.”
The guys have no other choice but to walk back to work, but since Si still won’t stop talking about his black panther sighting, they decide to do a little experiment. Jase sends Godwin down the road ahead of them, then tells him to crouch down in panther position and crawl across the dirt road, while the guys try to explain to Si that from a distance even Godwin might look like a black panther to Si.
But Si is not convinced because panthers don’t wear shirts. “In Vietnam they called me ‘Crazy Eyes’ because my eyes are crazy good.” What other way to solve this problem than to make Godwin take off his shirt and crawl back and forth across the dirt road again? But Si still doesn’t see how he could have mistaken something else for a black panther, when he looks at Godwin: “I see a polar bear wearing pants.”
Jase gives up: “The lesson I learned is don’t make a walrus do the job of a panther.”
Finally they arrive at Phil’s and Miss Kay’s house where Phil still has more chores for the boys. Jase takes Reed’s keys to head back to work, leaving Reed behind to fend for himself. Reed: “I’m never coming over here again.”
Just in the nick of time Jase makes it back to the Duck Commander warehouse, with the delivery guy about to leave. The package has Willie’s name on it, so Jep and Jase decide to open it and see what it is that was so important that Jase had to be here to sign for it, and out comes a Willie bobblehead.
“I risked my life and walked three miles for this?” Jase complains, but Jep knows how to fix the situation. He takes the bobblehead, throws it against the wall and breaks it. “Whoops, Willie had an accident.”
In the end the entire Robertson family sits down together for their family dinner and Willie reflects on the differences of his family members, and while they all listen to Si’s panther story again, Willie decides that you just have to love each and every one of them for who they are.
